"In three parts: Part first. Any theory, hypothesis, philosophy, sect, creed, or institution that fears investigation openly manifests its own error. Part second. Reason is a flower of the spirit and its fragrance is liberty and knowledge. Part third. When distributive justice pervades the social world, virtue and morality will bloom with an immortal beauty; while the sun of righteousness will arise in the horizon of universal industry and shed its genial rays over all the fields of peace, plenty, and human happiness!"
